BWW Recap: The Son Also Rises on SCANDAL
by Jennifer McHugh - May 6, 2016

I'm guessing when the writers created this episode, they didn't realize just how prophetic it would be… or did they? It's getting creepy real in fiction, even if it isn't as creepy as reality. (more...)

BWW Review: Theatre Novi Most's THE SEAGULL is an Odd and Enchanting Dream of a Production
by Jill Schafer - Mar 7, 2016

Chekhov's THE SEAGULL is a classic of the theater, but I had never seen it. That's not exactly true, it was actually the first play I ever saw at the Guthrie, but being almost 25 years ago, I have no recollection of it. So it was as if I'd never seen it when I sat down to yesterday's matinee production of THE SEAGULL by Theatre Novi Most, a company that specializes in Eastern European theater, as part of the Southern Theater's ARTShare program. It took me a few minutes to get into this story of many inter-related characters with strange sounding names, but by intermission I was completely under its spell. This is one of those shows that is so completely captivating that it's hard to shake when you leave the theater. Funny, tragic, odd, and completely enchanting. (more...)

BWW Blog: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF's Ben Rappaport- Dry? Just Add Water!
by Guest Blogger: Ben Rappaport - Mar 23, 2016

In between takes of a scene on 'The Good Wife' a few years ago, I was commiserating with veteran actor Zach Grenier-'Why is it that I'm completely relaxed in every shot EXCEPT my close up?' His response? 'Because this is for the ages. This will exist long after you and I are gone.' That's the weight you carry on your back in TV, film, and in the recording studio that you don't have in the theatre. In a play, there's always tomorrow night. (more...)

BWW Recap: Liza Falls For a Shepherd with a Secret, Matthew Morrison Guests on YOUNGER
by Matt Smith - Mar 2, 2016

Hey, YOUNGER fans! Hope you've all had a great week, and that you're recovering well from the heartbreak we all suffered in the last episode. Yes, it was sad for Liza to let Josh go (correction: for Josh to let Liza go), but it seems like she's doing okay. I mean, granted, she's a little shaken — who wouldn't be? — but it's nothing compared to how shaken she'll be at the end of this half-hour. How's that for a teaser? Get you interested? Yes? Well, then… you know what to do. Read on:  (more...)

BWW Blog: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF's Ben Rappaport- My Road To Anatevka
by Guest Blogger: Ben Rappaport - Mar 2, 2016

Let's take a trip back in time, shall we? The year was 1993 (or '94, or '95....'96?), I was 7 (or 8, or 9...10?) years old, and my parents took my sister and me to the Three Little Bakers dinner theater in Wilmington, Delaware, where 'Fiddler On The Roof' was playing. Unfortunately, I don't remember much about this experience other than that it was the first time I ever had a Shirley Temple, the waitress made me cry, and the line for the prime rib buffet was very long. This was, however, the first time those famous first strains of Jerry Bock's violin solo entered the back of my brain and psyche, and never left. Over the next several years, Fiddler lightly weaved its way in and out of my life: the occasional off key rendition of 'Sunrise, Sunset' at Jewish Community North, catching the film on AMC, and that community theatre production that my synagogue's men's club brought their families to (ironically enough, the girl playing Hodel ended up being my prom date). While at Juilliard, my best friend, Scott and I saw the 2004 revival together TWICE. Once with Alfred Molina, and Another Time with Harvey Fierstein and Rosie O'Donnell. For over a decade, it's been part of our rotation of inside jokes to cast Tevye and Golde with obscure and asinine choices of actors, then perform 'Do You Love Me', impersonating said actors (Keanu Reaves as Tevye and Paula Deen as Golde, anyone?). As an American suburban Jewish kid growing up in the late '90s/early 00's, Fiddler was just part of the narrative -- Chinese Food on Christmas. (more...)

BWW Review: ANNIE Brings Her Smile To The National Theatre
by Ellen Burns - Mar 17, 2016

That perennially adorable optimist Annie, and her fellow orphans have landed at Washington's National Theatre, and they're bringing the cute. Seriously folks, the show has real dogs, talented kids, a heartwarming story, and songs you know well (whether you like them or not might be another issue, of course). There's an impressive Beowulf Boritt set that makes good use of the height of the National's stage, and frequent set changes, refreshing for a touring production (which are often more spare for logistical reasons). And it's always a treat to have a live orchestra, a true overture and Act II musical introduction, and a troupe of excellent voices. (more...)

Seven Siblings Theatre to Present PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2016

For their first production in 2016, Seven Siblings Theatre will present Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a surreal comedy written by legendary comic/actor/screenwriter, Steve Martin. Set in a bar in 1904 Paris, Picasso at the Lapin Agile imagines a meeting of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in their youth, just before they each made their greatest contributions to society. One year later, Einstein publishes his Special Theory of Relativity, and in 1907, Picasso would go on to paint Les D'emoiselles D'Avignon. This irreverent comedy is both hilarious and poignant as the regulars and bar staff chime in on subjects such as love, art, the nature of genius, and what the future might hold. (more...)

BWW Blog: Parker Hughes - An Actors Ode to Techies
by Guest Blogger: Parker Hughes - Feb 3, 2016

I can't use a hammer. I don't know how to use a power saw. I'm not familiar with how mics work, and probably would not be able to mic myself, let alone anyone else. The most  know about lighting is pulling a cord on a lamp. But that's okay, because I'm an actor. I'm a writer. I'm a dancer, and I'm a director. I'm much better at "painting the picture" than painting the set piece. However, don't think I'm neglecting tech all together. My senior year I plan to tech my first show, but for now, I'm content where I am. There's also the fact that I'm not very good at tech. I don't know what makes me bad at it, I just know that I am. But there are people out there who are brilliant techies. I mean, absolute technical geniuses. It amazes me, seeing as tech theatre has protocols and rules and directions, and yet holds so much creativity. (more...)
